SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 9, 2014) — Potential.com, a pioneer in the field of educational technology “EdTech” and a leading provider of free blended lifelong learning solutions across emerging markets, today unveiled at TechCrunch Disrupt the next generation of its REAL™ business support platform with specific focus on scalable development programs for businesses and professionals.

Featuring over 1000 multilingual business training videos, tools and resources, with over 50+ live events planned in key markets across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, Potential’s free blended learning solutions enable participants to complement their online coursework with live workshops, one-on-one coaching, and engaging challenges, going beyond the traditional MOOC’s offering to fully maximize learner engagement, performance, and knowledge retention.

Shadi Banna, Managing Partner of potential.com said “We are delighted to participate in the TechCrunch disrupt conference to showcase our free massive open blended development programs that are helping to create jobs, empower individuals, and facilitate business opportunities.”

Foremost amongst Potential’s ever-growing range of development programs, are Hadafi – the women’s entrepreneurship program, which aims to enrich the individual talents and core business strengths of all women who want to turn their passion into a business venture. The SME Evolution Program, now running for four years, is another flagship Potential.com program that has benefited over 20,000 business owners in over 30 countries, and whose curriculum is designed to support existing entrepreneurs in expanding their operations and creating the next generation of fast growth businesses.

Available free of charge to anyone around the world through the generous support of corporate, government, and academic partners, Potential’s development programs empower professionals with the knowledge, insight and skills they need to advance their career and development goals, while enabling growing organizations to maximize performance, meet critical business challenges, and position themselves for long-term success.

“Our programs aim to enable established corporations, governments, and academic institutions to engage and support the communities in which they operate while still aligning with their business objectives, creating what professor Michael Porter has termed as shared value,” added Banna.

Having recently raised $1 million in venture capital funding, potential.com is set on expanding its platform and global footprint for the benefit of communities and businesses.
